Two points are separating the top three boats after the second day of the J/24 European Championship, hosted by Howth Yacht Club in Ireland. Another warm, sunny day welcomed the 34 J/24s who completed an additional couple races in winds of 10-12 knots, bringing the current race total to four.

Stelios Sotitiou helmed JMania (GRE) to the top of Tuesday's leaderboard with 23 points. Denny Vaughan's Easy Street (USA) kept pace to move into second place with 24 points. Another notch back is Stefan Karsunke's Schwere Jungs (GER).

Comprising the top three of the 21-boat Corinthian Division are Vaughan's Easy Street, David Hale's Cacoon (GBR) and James Torr's MaJic (GBR).

Reigning J/24 European Champions from the Marina Militare Italiana on La Superba (ITA) took line honors in Wednesday's opening battle, while JP McCaldin's IL Riccio (IRL) and Hale's Cacoon (GBR) followed. JMania (GRE) secured the day's top position by winning the next contest, in advance of Vaughan's Easy Street (USA) and Louis Mulloy's Headcase (IRL).

Six nations are represented: Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Ireland, Italy and the United States. Racing continues through Saturday, and 10 total races are planned.
